Active Directory thru ZD Captive Portal vs 802.1x
I'm trying to setup a WLAN for a customer where its employees can connect to the WLAN and authenticate using their Active Directory account. Is it better if I use 802.1x (FreeRADIUS) or just use ZD's built in Captive Portal (Web Authentication)? What are the advantages of using 802.1x? Setting up FreeRADIUS is a bit of a hassle.
By the way, can devices that are not joined to their domain connect to the WLAN either via the two options?
